What We Do

Food Pantry

Our pantry offers a variety of fresh, quality food to meet families’ choices and nutritional needs, and connects people with other services and resources.

Refurbished Computers & Training

From homework to finding a job, computers have become an essential tool in everyday life. We all need technology and skills to thrive in the digital age.

Our free Refurbished Computers and Training Programs help you gain the skills and tools you need in this digital world.

Social Services

People’s Resource Center offers social services, financial assistance, and emergency rent and mortgage assistance to qualifying clients. We connect with neighbors at risk of homelessness, to develop strategies to stay housed and stable.

Financial Assistance and Social Services

Emergency Rent and Mortgage Assistance

Job Assistance

Our neighbors seek to build and improve employment skills. The Job Assistance program at People’s Resource Center helps unemployed and underemployed residents of DuPage County find a job. We provide free workshops and one-on-one job search coaching.

Art Program

Art helps us express ourselves in both times of challenge and times of joy. People’s Resource Center offers free art classes for DuPage County residents. Classes include painting, ceramics, collage, and more.

Adult Learning & Literacy

Inclusive and informed communities are strong communities. The Adult Learning and Literacy program offers free instruction in English, math, and reading, as well as preparation for GED and citizenship tests. Learning occurs in classrooms, small groups, and one-on-one sessions with volunteer tutors.

Clothes Closet

People’s Resource Center clients may shop in our Clothes Closet for free, gently-used, seasonal clothing for men, women, and children.
